A child's diagnosis with Williams syndrome can significantly change the direction of a family. At times those changes are subtle and barely noticeable, but at other times they can feel catastrophic. Every family will benefit from the support of others along their journey. The WSA provides the support of others who are "in your shoes" and understand both the challenges and the joys your child with WS will provide. We also understand that sometimes the challenges can have a financial impact that is daunting or require the help of professionals. The resources below may lead you to just what you need. If the help or support you require is not listed here, please call or email. We can help.
The WSA’s Family Support Network is a nationwide network of WSA members (parents/relatives/caregivers/professionals) who want to connect, and help others connect with “communities within our community”. These communities may be based on simple demographics such as age or gender of son/daughter with WS, ethnicity, developmental and life stages, medical, emotional, or educational issues, or even your place of residence -- all under the broad premise of “see a need, fill a need.”
